we would have preferred a bit more flexibility regarding the breakfast (changing the compilation of the fixed breakfast menues was obviously not possible).
The shower was not in the least powerful.

The Retro provides stylish and comfortable Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the city of Canterbury. Perfectly situated, it is only a 10-15 minute walk from both Canterbury’s historic city centre and the University of Kent. Canterbury West Railway Station can be reached in less than 10 minutes on foot and the quaint harbour town of Whitstable is 15 minutes away by car.

This late-Victorian villa has been sympathetically restored to its former glory and each of the six en-suite bedrooms are all individually styled, providing a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. We have 3 doubles, 2 twin rooms, and a spacious 2-room family suite which can sleep up to 5 plus a baby. All bedrooms feature Freeview TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer.

Breakfast is included in the price and is a good, old-fashioned Full English, freshly cooked using local Kentish produce, with vegetarian and lighter options available.

Families with children of any age welcome. Sorry, we do not allow pets. Free parking on-site for up to four cars. Vehicles exceeding 2.1m in width will not fit down the driveway

Whether you are visiting Canterbury on business or for its historic attractions, fabulous shopping, great restaurants, or simply to enjoy a romantic break, a stay at The Retro will enhance your visit.
